tomandjerry-012209Warner Bros. is bringing the classic Hanna-Barbera cartoon series Tom and Jerry to the big screen, creating their own Alvin and the Chipmunks-like family franchise.

The studio is looking to bring the cat and mouse duo to life as CG characters that run around in live-action settings.

The film will be an origin story that reveals how Tom and Jerry first meet and form their rivalry before getting lost in Chicago and reluctantly working together during an arduous journey home, Variety reports.

Eric Gravning is penning the script.
